Emotional Support


Living with prostate cancer can be hard to deal with emotionally, as well as physically and can affect how you feel. If you’re feeling down or worried and are finding it hard to deal with things, we’re here for you.

Emotional support handbook

If you feel counselling isn’t right for you, or you’re already getting mental health support from somewhere else, our handbook might be more suitable for you.

It’s been designed to guide you through the emotional challenges you might be experiencing and offers simple exercises to manage short-term anxiety at key stages of your diagnosis and treatment.

We find it’s easiest to print it out and use as a handbook, but you can also grab a pen and paper to complete the activities whilst looking at the instructions on your screen.
